First for Schoeller’s Nanosphere fabric

Abstract:
NanoSphere-treated fabric from Swiss manufacturer Schoeller has become the first product to qualify for the 'Nanotechnology' quality label. In order for a textile product to be able to use the Hohenstein quality label, however, it will not be sufficient for nanoparticles to be incorporated within the fibre or for the fibres to be enclosed in a nanoscale coating (nanofilm). Rather, the nanoparticles or nanolayers in or on the textile must be systematically arranged and demonstrably result in a new function. In addition, the nanotechnology must only be perceptible to the wearer by means of a demonstrably improved function, and have a negligible effect on the textile properties.
